EXPORT PROCEDURES FOR GOODS EXPORTED FROM CUSTOMS CONTROLLED EXPORT WAREHOUSE (CCEW)

EXPORT PROCEDURES FOR GOODS EXPORTED FROM CUSTOMS CONTROLLED EXPORT WAREHOUSE (CCEW)

Malawi Revenue Authority (MRA) wishes to inform all exporters, clearing and forwarding agents and the public that it has formulated export procedures for goods exported from Customs Controlled Export Warehouse.

This follows the gazetting of Customs Controlled Export Warehouse Regulations requiring that exportation of non-traditional agricultural produce should originate from Customs Controlled Export Warehouses.

Non-traditional agricultural produce includes Soya Beans, Pigeon Peas, Maize Grains, Groundnuts, Sunflower, Sesame Seeds, Beans, Sorghum, Millet, Cow Peas and Rice.

 

The following are the export procedures for goods exported from a Customs Controlled Export Warehouse:

Declaration Processing Centre (DPC) shall process an export declaration for agriculture produce with an attachment of form 126 (Export Warehouse goods receipt) in ASYCUDA World System as mandatory document.
The Clearance Office shall issue a Release Order and a signed copy of the export Declaration Form 12 to the exporter for presentation to CCEW operator.

 

3.    The CCEW operator shall issue Form 127 (Export Warehouse goods release) to the exporter as proof of release of goods from CCEW.


The Customs officer shall stamp and endorse customs declaration number/s corresponding to the export goods on form 127 and sign it along with warehouse operator and exporter signatories. This from (127) shall be used as transit document by the exporter from the loading export warehouse to the exiting border station.

 

At the Office of Exit, the customs officers designated for exports processing, shall inspect the goods as well as the conveyance and discharge the export declaration in the system. Form 127 shall be acquitted, retained and filed by the same officer.

 

 The exporter or the Agent shall demand a signed copy of an Export Discharge Note from the officer as tangible proof of export. This is mandatory and subject to audit.

 

7.    The officers at the roadblocks are required to check that the goods declared on Form 12 are exactly the same as those on Form 127 in description, nature and quantity.

 

The Authority would like to inform exporters that non-traditional agriculture produce that will not be exported from Customs Controlled Export Warehouse shall be detained and liable for seizure and forfeiture to Government.

 

MRA would therefore like to advise all exporters of agriculture produce to take note of this development and act accordingly to minimize delays in the customs clearance process of exports.
